Learning to fly?

A recent visitor who clung on to my truck's window from home till I got to work.

Talk about perseverance. I drove at 55 mph for about 2 miles on the service road. Rest of the places, I was driving at about 40. Total distance covered 6 miles.

When I got to work, I gently removed my little friend from the window using a little rag that I had in the vehicle and placed him in a flowerbed.
I did not know if he was learning to fly or he/she was long for this world at that point in time.

It was during my morning Tea that I saw my wife's text alerting me of Tom Petty's passing.
Favorite of many a music fan.

I will leave you with the one of my favorite songs by Tom Petty.

Adios for now.
Have a Happy Weekend!
Peace :)


  1. Nice ability to stick all the way… enjoyed both the music videos of tom petty. Thanks for lovely songs

  2. Hello, 6 miles is a long way for the bee to be stuck to the window. The flowerbed is a much happier place. RIP Tom Petty. Thank you so much for linking up and sharing your post. Happy Saturday, enjoy your weekend!

  3. Amazing that it could hold on for that long!

  4. That's perseverance! You know how when you wake up a song will be stuck in your head from the day before. Of course the radio is playing a lot of Tom Petty right now and "Last Dance with Mary Jane" was in my head and as I scrolled down on your post, there it was.

  5. Strong and courageous bug ~ and great photos ~ ^_^

  6. Tom Petty and your hitch-a-ride friend had a lot in common.

  7. At least the fly was not invading into a new ecosystem. Brown tree snakes have wiped out most of the native birds on Guam and have been caught dropping out of jetliner wheel wells onto the taxiways at Honolulu. Come to think of it, we humans are an invasive species most places...

  8. A true 'stick with it' character.....

  9. I was sure surprised to hear of Tom Petty's passing when it happened...

Sand Burrs - Not a friend of Shaggy Dog!

Shaggy and I drove to Cedar Hill yesterday so I can get turn in my Texas State Park Pass voucher and get official pass from the TX Parks Office at Cedar Hill State Park.

We stopped at the Joe Pool Lake to check it out. It was a hot, yet beautiful day here in Dallas. Shaggy didn't appreciate the heat. He hid under the bench.
While this photo is not very crisp, I still want to show it so y'all can see the devastating effect the burrs had on Shaggy's face, which you can see in the next photo.

After we got done with the official business, we decided to go hike the Duck Pond Trail at the Cedar Hill State Park. Little did I know about the dangers of taking a Old English Sheepdog walking in a trail abundant with the infamous Sand Burr. The result:
Those evil things got all over his face and he started rubbing his face with his paws and the burrs from the paws got transferred to his face and it was just a really horrible mess.

I tried pulling them burrs off but in vain. There were way …

Out goes the Chow In comes the Basil and the catters are resting

So, we finally got some cooler temps in North Texas.
In fact, a bit too cold, too soon, for some :)

So, with the new colder weather, someone who has been refusing to stay out in the yard, doesn't want to come in no more. Go figure :)

In comes the Basil plant. Too cold for it, at least right now.
Who knows though? Next week it could be back in the low 80s or some such.
Either way it is fine.
Change is good too.

The catters like to eat and sleep.
Particularly, the seniors.

And, some tired looking Juniors.

It is an assortment this time

That's right. You read the title correctly - this post contains an assortment of photographs, not necessarily in any special order.

I will give you a minute to guess what the first photograph is of :) In case you haven't a clue, you can see my little blurb about it at the very end of this post.
I had the day off Friday, so I did rest a bunch and spend time with my family. Black Kitty took a nap with me and was even friendly after I trimmed his nails :) Sometimes, reflections can be very interesting. I love looking at reflections on many objects/surfaces, such as this reflection of a fence on a motorcycle's headlight.
Just in case. 
The reflection in the first photo is one of a church. The photograph was taken by clicking at the television, while we were watching a British Murder Mystery show. If you enlarge the photo, you can see lot more details.

It has been a great week. Hope yours was too.
